Love these Fresh Cut notes!

Here are the cards I made for this week's Workshop Wow challenge. The challenge is to use the retiring In Colors. I got the color combo from Emily who has been making some gorgeous cards using Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip together!
I got the idea for these cards from the card I made a while back where I masked off the card and just stamped on the petals. I loved that look but wanted something on the card itself. So I decided to take 2 note cards and stamp one in Chocolate Chip (yes, I need to reink my pad, LOL) and one in Soft Sky. Then I punched out the petals and used the 2 way glue pen to attach the Soft Sky petals to the Chocolate Chip card and vice versa. I did the petals one at a time so I could keep the pattern sort of lined up. Before I adhered the petals, I edged them in the same color they were stamped with.

This is how it looked after I glued on the petals. I just put a little dab of glue in the 3 spots where the petal pulled off near the middle. This left a little gap; you can see the light shining through in the top photo.

For the Soft Sky card, I used Mono Multi to adhere a felt flower and half pearl to the center, and I tore the edge of the card then added Old Olive around all the card edges. For the Chocolate Chip card, I tied Chocolate Chip ribbon through a ribbon slide and adhered it with Mono Multi. Then I sponged Soft Sky around all 4 edges of the card and stamped "For You" in Chocolate Chip.

Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Floral, Fresh Cuts; Paper: Fresh Cut Notes; Ink: Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive; Accessories: 2 way glue, Mono Multi, Flower Fusion, Pretties kit, Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware, Chocolate Chip polytwill ribbon

I am excited to report that my preorder from the new catalog will be here on Friday, so look for some new colors, stamps and accessories (Can you say "scallop border punch"???) in the next week! Whoohoo!!

Happy stamping!

just gorgeous, had to pick my chin up off the floor. I tried masking but did not think I could glue the petals back on, genius.
